Agricultural Heating Use
- Poultry houses
- No flues are needed in the poultry house, thus no CO2 and no water vapour are released into the poultry house.
- Low ventilation outside, which saves energy.
- Save an average of 23% energy costs compared to direct fired space heater
- Lower down 15% humidity, meaning poultry house remains drier
- Lowers poultry mortality
- Easy installation, no need to monitor flue gas in poultry house
- Easy to use and clean
- Insurance fee is low
- Exterior combustion air is preheated by exhaust flue
- Made with stainless steel
HOW IT WORKS
A unit heater is a stand-alone appliance serving to heat a given space and is capable of operating on propane or natural gas.
The equipment usually includes a heat exchanger, through which a fan blows air from the room to be heated.
- Natural gas or LPG.
- Rates 200/270/340 x1,000 Btu/hr or 60/80/100kW
- Inshot burner makes the combustion more complete with lower CO and NOx.
- Closed combustion system and specially designed for poultry house
- Heat exchanger made by aluminized steel or stainless steel pipes.
- Reliable Direct Spark Ignition.
- The 12VAC low-voltage ignition controller, specially developed for HVAC industry, all troubleshoots can be easily identified by the indicator lights
- Safer and reliable low-voltage 24 VAC combination gas valve with 100% shut off.
- Flameout protection, fan malfunction protection, and overheating protection.
- Special baffles in the heat exchanger can enhance heat exchange efficiency.
Heating Power (Recommendation only):
Minimum heating power(kW)=Poultry house volume(m³)*0.07kW/m³
Considering small temperature difference in a poultry house, a typical 100m*12m broiler house needs 400kW thermal input or 4 sets of KWIH100 heaters while 120m*12m broiler house needs 6 sets of KWIH100 heaters.
Here are some criteria to consider in installing the units:
- Installation height;
- Warm air circulation;
- Venting: combustion products are usually vented outdoors.
